I went to bed a bit late last night, was up briefly with Dom at around 3 AM, and then was up around 6:15 trying to get Alex to sleep in a little longer. Fortunately for me Puck was home and sent me off for a nap that went pretty well even with our little boys occasionally banging on the shelves on the other side of the wall. After I got up, I hung out with the boys while Puck some time for himself, and before I knew it we had to start our naptime routine.

Giggles, Tears, and Giggles Again

Dom and Alex

I love the sound of Dom and Alex giggling together! (Sept. 28, 2012)

Dom and Alex had a good time playing together today. Woo hoo for harmony! They also took a pretty amazingly long nap–from 12:30 until 4. I kept expecting them to wake up at any moment. I did get a few things done, but I didn’t undertake any bigger projects. Post-nap the boys were happy and giggly. Puck and I sat at opposite ends of the hallway, and Alex and Dom ran back and forth into our arms with laughter, smiles, and joy.

Unfortunately, it did end in tears when Alex and Dom got staggered and ran head first into each other. Dom was pretty upset, and Alex didn’t quite understand. Puck suggested he give Dom a kiss to feel better, and Alex trotted down the hallway to sweetly lean over to kiss his brother. Dom, however, was not ready for brotherly comfort and tried to recreate the accident by head-butting Alex who was a little upset by Dom still crying. Next, Puck helped Alex fetch the koala stuffed animal to give to Dom which did stop him crying as he shook his head and ran over to reject it by putting it on the table by the door. That at least got his mind off of his boo-boo.

During nursing, the boys started taking turns making a high-pitched little noise because I would tease them with quick little kisses on the side of their cheeks. They would giggle happily and make the high-pitched noise again for a new round of fun. After he finished, Alex ran over to crawl onto Puck’s chest and have a chat.

Big Conversations

Alex

Alex: It was this big! (Sept. 24, 2012)

Dom’s and Alex’s favorite conversation is about who is big and little. “Dom big. Alex big. Dada big. Mama big.” Sometimes they throw in trucks, tractors, dogs, and cars in their size conversations, and occasionally Dom and Alex declare themselves “little.” Sometimes their discussion goes, “Dada big. Mama big. Dom little. Alex little.” Today they added a new line of conversation, “Dom poop. Alex poop,” plus “big poop.” Alex will also tell you “big toot” after…well, you know. Today Alex and Dom also teased Puck and me by declaring us “little” which they both found amusing.

The Taking Turns Trick

Puck has a new toddler motivating technique in his arsenal. When he wants Dom and Alex to do something, he just announces, “It’s so-and-so’s turn.” Then, one (or both) of the boys will run up to declare that it is his turn, and on the rare occasion that neither does, they still go along with it being their turn without any fuss. Smart daddy!

Good Night

When it was time for bedtime songs and the boys were snuggled in our arms, Alex started to pretend he was sleeping by snoring. Dom thought that was hilarious and joined in the fun.

Last night and tonight when we put the boys to bed Puck encouraged Dom and Alex to tell each other goodnight. Both nights when Puck suggested Dom say, “Good night, Alex.” He replied, “Good night, Dom.” Alex said, “Good night, Alex” last night, but tonight he actually said, “Good night, Dom.” Then, after we finished tucking everyone in and headed out the door, Alex and Dom continued telling each other “Good night” and giggling. Puck and I grinned at each other as we listened to them over the monitor. Such cuties!
